to soak or not to soak

I just got an MES 30 and I can't find anything in the manuel about whether or not to soak the wood chips. Can anyone tell me, do you or don't you?

You don't need to soak wood chips. Ever.

Thanks so much! I used the smoker yesterday for the first time, didn't soak and the pulled pork was delicious and juicy. Just wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing!

No soaking here. Not ever.

Nope...Wet wood doesn't smoke it just makes steam until it dries out...JJ

Use to do it when I first started smoking in the late 70's, but that was the way I was taught. Don't do it anymore.
